And the islamiclinks to an external site.

Essay2 is designed to engage the student to think critically while comparing and contrasting the economic and development divide between the natural resource-rich ‘developing’ countries of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries or OPEC13Links to an external site. (Algeria, Angola, Congo [Republic of], Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Venezuela) and the powerful ‘developed’ countries of the Group of Seven or G7Links to an external site. (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, United Kingdom, and the United States) by observing, measuring, and explaining their long-established global North-South economic and development divideLinks to an external site. based on development indicators such as Population, Gross Domestic Product (GDP), GDP per capita, Human Development Index, and Inequality-adjusted Human Development Index; and ALSO based on the geopolitical divide between FOUR main adversaries (the StateLinks to an external site. of IsraelLinks to an external site. and the UnitedLinks to an external site.

Step 1. Access the CIA World FactbookLinks to an external site., click on “Countries”, scroll down, select each one of the 13 members of the OPEC countries, and find out its population (by clicking “Population and Society”) and its GDP, official exchange rate (by clicking on “Economy”). Then compute the total/combined population in 2022 (or the available year) and the total/combined Gross Domestic Product (GDP, official exchange rate, in US dollar) in 2019 (or the available year) of the 13 members of OPEC (the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries). Next, you divide the total/combined GDPs (official exchange rate in US dollar, or $, or USD) of the 13 OPEC countries by their total/combined population to obtain the average GDP per capita in USD of the 7 OPEC countries. Repeat the above same steps to compute the THREE figures (Total population, Total GDP, and GDP per capita) for the G7 countries.
Step 2. Access the United Nations Human Development Report 2020Links to an external site. , scroll down to Table 1: Human Development Index and its components on pages 343-346 of the pdf file (pagination on your computer could be different), and find out the Human Development Index (HDI 2019) for each one of the 13 members of the OPEC countries, add the 13 HDI figures and divide the total by 13 (minus the number of “NA”–Not Applicable or Not Available figures, if any in that column) to obtain the Average HDI 2019 figure for the 13 OPEC countries. Scroll down again through the UN Human Development Report 2020 to Table 3: Inequality‑adjusted Human Development Index on pages 351-355 (pagination on your computer could be different), and find out the Inequality-adjusted Human Development Index (IHDI 2019 on the column next to HDI 2019) for each one of the 13 members of OPEC countries, add the 13 IHDI figures and divide the total by 13 (minus the number of “NA”–Not Applicable or Not Available figures, if any in that column) to obtain the Average IHDI 2019 figure for the 13` OPEC countries. Repeat the above same steps to compute the TWO figures (Average HDI 2019 and Average IHDI 2019) for the G7 countries.
Step 3. Based on (a) the 10 figures you computed in steps 1 and 2, (b) the 82-word summary/abstract paragraph of the article entitled “Recycling PetrodollarsLinks to an external site.”, (c) the graph entitled “Who gets what from a liter of oil in 2020Links to an external site.”, (d) Qatari Prime Minister’s revelation of $137 billion spent by Geopolitical Axis1 on the war against SyriaLinks to an external site., (e) President Trump’s announcement of $350 billion in deals Links to an external site.with Saudi ArabiaLinks to an external site. and it’s Crown PrinceLinks to an external site. and President Trump’s geopolitical repeated reiteration that U.S. troops [estimated at 70,000Links to an external site. in 2020] will remain in the Middle East for IsraelLinks to an external site., that the U.S. will remain a steadfast partner to Saudi Arabia to ensure Israeli interests links to an external site., that Israel would be in big trouble without Saudi ArabiaLinks to an external site., that the Saudi king wouldn’t last two weeks without U.S. military backlinks to an external site., that the Gulf states will pay for the war on Syria because without the United States the Gulf states won’t exist links to an external site., and that Israel literally owned CongresLinks to an external site.s; (f) President Biden has reversed his campaign promise to make Saudi Arabia a “pariah” [for killing Saudi journalist Jamal KhashoggiLinks to an external site. after placing the Israeli Pegasus spyware on the cellphone of his wife months before he was murdered inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul], Turkey. Israeli Pegasus spyware sale to Arab states of the Gulf Cooperation Council also played “a critical roleLinks to an external site.” in “negotiating the so-called Abraham Accords”] when he (Biden) said that Israel’s security and not oil prices is the key reason for his scheduled visit to Saudi ArabiaLinks to an external site.; and (g) Iran’s Supreme Leader’s depiction of Saudi Arabia as a “cow being milked”Links to an external site. by the United States, based on all your learning from computing the 10 figures and from the additional documented points, you should describe, explain, and evaluate the comparative wealth and power of the TWO GROUPS of countries (G7 and OPEC7) in light of the dynamics of confrontations between FOUR main adversaries operating within TWO coalitions of states or geopolitical axes.
Step 4. Based on the Axis1-Axis2 geopolitical divide and based on the following FOUR observations, discuss concisely why for decades the six Saudi-led Arab states of the Gulf Cooperation Council are still unable (a) to secure a full-fledged security treaty with the United StatesLinks to an external site. akin to the ones the United States has with Japan and South Korea that ensure America; or (b) to build a national armed force to defend themselves by themselves as their Iranian neighbors had successfully done over the past 40 years once they nailed down Article 146 of their 1979 Constitution stipulating clearly that “The establishment of any kind of foreign military base in Iran, even for peaceful purposes, is forbidden.” Here are the FOUR observations: (i) According to the CIALinks to an external site., the six Arab states of the Gulf Cooperation Council (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates) have a total population of 56 million in 2022 and a total GDP of $1,655 billion in 2019; and Iran has a population of 86 million in 2022 and a GDP of $581 billion in 2019. (ii) According to US President ObamaLinks to an external site., the “combined defense budget” of the six Arab states of the Gulf Cooperation Council “is ten times Iran’s defense budget.” (iii) According to Business InsiderLinks to an external site., Saudi Arabia has the best military equipment money can buy — but it’s still not a threat to Iran. (iv) According to a recent paper titled “Oil Resource Abundance in the Gulf Cooperation Council Countries: A Curse or a Blessing?” and published by Montenegrin Journal of Economics, Links to an external site. “oil abundance on its own does not behave as a curse in the GCC countries… and resource abundance by itself has been a blessing for the growth and development of the GCC economies.”
Step 5: The student should explain honestly and sincerely the extent to which his/her OWN learning, analysis, and critical thinking did or did not construct, reconstruct, or deconstruct his/her OWN worldview about the contemporary global North-South economic and development divide between the TWO GROUPS of countries (the natural resource-rich ‘developing’ countries and the powerful ‘developed’ countries). Keep in mind that we saw in Essa1 that “culture” is often at the service of geopolitics (not the other way around). In Essay2 see if “economics” too is often at the service of geopolitics.
Make sure to address directly, separately, and in sequence, each one of the questions asked based EXCLUSIVELY on the assigned slides/videos/links (shared with all class members) and format and document your answers according to the detailed sample page format of the syllabus.In your essay, you should cite ONLY the 10 figures to support your analysis. You should NOT have any tables or listings of countries or comparisons of individual countries or any other figures that you may have computed or come across while computing the 10 figures. Remember always that you are comparing TWO groups of countries, NOT individual countries.
only use sources from the powerpoint please…

Title: Keeping Women Invisible by Design: The Model Agrarian Pyramid and Gender Power
————————————————————————————————————————————-
Essay: Choose One of the Following Two Essay Prompts
Worth One Hundred (100) Points
Prompt 1: The first three chapters of Frameworks build up a conceptual model of early human societies. The
model consists of networks, hierarchies, and cultural frames and screens. Taking the diagram of the Agrarian
Pyramid as a summary hypothesis of types of hierarchies in a state-level agrarian society, test one of the
hypotheses presented against evidence from at least two of the primary sources you have read so far this
semester. Compose an argumentative essay with introduction, body paragraphs, and conclusion
demonstrating how the reading supports or challenges the model of hierarchy hypothesized in the agrarian
pyramid. Be sure to identify the aspect of the model you are testing, the primary source readings you are
using to test the model, include a thesis statement, and provide evidence from the sources to support your
thesis. Better essays will make references to specific examples from multiple primary sources. A few comments on writing style:
o Proofread, proofread, proofread!
o Citations – Open quotation mark, word, punctuation, close quotation mark, footnote reference number.
o Clear & Concise – Aim for clarity and conciseness. https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/572/01/
o Editorializing – Avoid describing what you are going to do. Just do it.
o Epistemology – Avoid words like “feel” or “believe” in your history writing and use words like opine
or posit. Beliefs and feelings are not an appropriate basis for arriving at historical conclusions. Go
through your paper and revise.
o God v. god – Pronoun v. noun. The word god is capitalized only when referring to the Christian god since
that is its name.
o Introductions – Introduce the text to your reader the first time you reference it. Article title and author if
known. After the first introduction of the author, use his or her last name to refer to him or her.
o LQ – Avoid long quotes in short writing assignments.
o Naming Conventions – East Asian convention is to put the family name before the given name, i.e. last
name then first name, whereas in the U.S. given names are listed before family names.
o Past Tense – When writing about the past, use the past tense.
o Personalizing – Avoid personalizing statements with “I,” “we,” “our,” or “your” in your history writing.
Since your work is the product of your thoughts, use of “I” is redundant. Often, the sentence works
without this phrasing.
o Presentism – uncritical adherence to present-day attitudes, especially the tendency to interpret past
events in terms of modern values and concepts.
o Q & A – Avoid asking questions in short writing assignments. Answer them.
o Secondary v. primary source – Base your conclusions on the primary source material itself rather than on
the secondary source editorial contextualizing the document.
o Text Titles – Italicize text titles of complete works of art and literature. Go through your paper and
revise.
